Bachelor Degree In Australia
Find the right Bachelor Degree in Australia with our comprehensive guide.
Undergraduate courses in Australia usually last three or four years and focus on one specific subject (the ‘major’), which students study from their first year. Whilst studying you may be invited to add an honours title to their degree – this will require a research-based thesis, undertaken over a year, and will make the degree four rather than three years long.
Professional degrees, such as medicine, law, dentistry, architecture or engineering, will take longer than four years – medical degrees, for example, take six.
Students can specialise in a wide variety of areas – there are 40 universities in Australia, offering thousands of opportunities to study a degree.
If you get a confirmed offer from a university in Australia, you will receive a Letter of Offer which needs to be signed and returned.
